I really like ubuntu; been using it for about a year. Since I have access to three systems and a laptop at home, printing has not been a major concern - (XP, sorry). Anyway, I attempted to add my two major printers to a small ubuntu box with the idea of eventually converting most of my work to U. I have close to 1,000 good photos from Italy and a few stateside locations. It was a good idea until I attempted to install a Canon Pixma IP6000D and Canon I9900. The printer list does not even mention these printers. Went out on the web and got more bad news from TURBO PRINT, a CANON driver site I don't recall, and one referencing GUTENBERG. I think. Drivers almost work - results do not resemble photoshop - XP prints at all. I spent 8 years as an email administrator (RedHat 9 and Fedora ) and about 15 before that as a training administrator dealing with WIN95/98/2000 and - Uggghh - MSDOS. Don't really care if I ever see another command line again - unlesss I am troubleshooting my own stuff.
